“A month ago, ADC conducted the most credible, free and fair presidential primary election in Nigeria despite the fact that we had twelve presidential aspirants.
“The presidential primary election which produced a youth, Mr Dumebi Kachikwu, throw ADC up as the most credible alternative to the other two political parties which have misruled or mismanaged the affairs of Nigeria in the past 23 years.
“Since the registration of our party in 2006, we had always produced the best presidential candidate that would have transformed Nigeria into a global superpower starting from Prof. Pat Utomi to the late Dr Obediah Mailafi, the former deputy Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
“For the 2023 presidential election, we have presented to Nigerians another great thinker, technocrat and highly successful businessman, builder and entrepreneur, Mr Dumebi Kachikwu.
